Paris Saint Germain ( PSG )
PSG, the abbreviation of Paris St Germain FC, was formed in 1970 by the merger of Paris FC and Stade Saint-Germain and has competed in the top tier of French football, Ligue 1, since 1974. Among their many trophies PSG have won Ligue 1 six times, the Coupe de France ten times (itself a record), the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup once and the UEFA Intertoto Cup once. PSG is the second highest supported club in France, second only to their rivals Marseilles but in many opinions the most successful. The club have just separated from their manager Lauren Blanc who has been in position since 2013. Laurent led PSG to the Ligue 1 title in each of his three seasons in charge, but lost in the Champions League quarter-finals each year, the latest disappointment being against Manchester City. With their new manager Unai Emery under pressure to improve on his predecessor’s results, PSG should be a team well worth watching in the seasons ahead.
Let’s review some of the outstanding players who have graced Paris St Germain over the past 45 years. Frenchman Dominique Rocheteau played for eight years for PSG, scoring 100 goals during this time. He also helped France’s national team to win the European championship in 1984. Defender Jean-Marc Pilorget is unquestionably the most loyal PSG player over the years from 1975-1989. He still holds the record as the PSG player with the most appearances, with a total of 435 matches.
Brazilian Rai was at Paris Saint-Germain between 1995 and 1998 when PSG beat Rapid Vienna to win the Cup-Winners' Cup. 1995 saw him score six goals in 28 Ligue 1 games as his new club won the national championship for the second time in its history; he then helped PSG to the following season's French Cup, and was on target in the League Cup final against SC Bastia. George Weah is the only PSG player who won the Ballon d'Or and FIFA Player of the Year which he achieved in 1995. Weah was also the main PSG striker when they won the league in the 1993-1994 season. Portugese striker Pauleta is the PSG top scorer of all time, scoring 109 goals in 168 appearances. He was also Club Captain for three years and for two years in 2005 and 2006 was the leading scorer in the French league.
In 2001, a future star arrived to the City of Light. The Brazilian playmaker Ronaldinho signed a five-year contract with French club Paris Saint-Germain. Upon his arrival in Paris, Ronaldinho was given the number 21 shirt and played alonside other Aloísio, midfielder Jay-Jay Okocha and striker Nicolas Anelka. Reinforced by the likes of Carlo Ancelotti and Zlatan Ibrahimović in 2012, PSG secured the club's first Ligue 1 title in 19 years, and third overall in 2012–13. Today, PSG is a force to be reckoned with on the European stage with that keeps on attracting players at top levels.
